She's been cycling for nine days straight but Turia Pitt says life has never been better.
Turia and her partner Michael Hoskins are currently participating in the Variety Cycle ride from Canberra to Uluru, Turia's first major sporting challenge since she received catastrophic burns while competing in an ultramarathon in 2011.
Yesterday was the ninth day of the 4000km journey and while fatigue was starting to set in, Turia, 26, remained upbeat, tweeting "life's good" alongside a picture of her on the road.

The Variety Cycle – which is aiming to raise $1 million for the Variety children's charity – is due to reach Alice Springs on April 16.
It's not the only challenge Turia is taking on this year – she is also taking part in the 20km Lake Argyle swim and will walk a section of the Great Wall of China.
